Our Guest Reviews

Dar Batma Recommended by 100% of our customers (14 reviews)
Average rating 9.2/10


Maison avec beaucoup de charme réalisée par Elie Moyal, architecte connu de Marrakech. La maison est une peu "dans son jus" mais très agréable. Le personnel est très gentil, nous avons eu des feus de cheminée tous les soirs dans les chambres.
Le mobilier pourrait être plus entretenu. Le jardin mériterait aussi un bon entretien. Maison un peu éloignée du centre.
La maison en elle-même, sa décoration, son aménagement, le jardin et les piscines sont magnifiques.
Les chambres sont très agréables.

Très bonne réactivité de villanovo et service de grande qualité. Aucun problème à signaler.
Elle est un petit peu éloignée de Marrakech mais résultat elle est au calme, ce qui est parfait.
Very nice house
Some issues with poor plumbing/showers/toilets in some of the bedrooms, and also very poor wifi-connection. Should be informed about in case guests needs to work while on holiday in Dar Batma.
La décoration est d'un goût parfait, les différents patios ont beaucoup de charme ; le très grand parc est magnifiquement entretenu et a été extrêmement apprécié aussi bien par les adultes que par les enfants.
Une mention spéciale pour le personnel de la maison, dont la gentillesse, l'efficacité et la disponibilité ont grandement contribué au succès du séjour : Abdoul est très compétent, Samira est une cuisinière hors pair, et Sadoul a devancé tous nos désirs...

Pour la préparation du séjour, les conseillers de Villanovo répondent de façon très pertinente à toutes les questions.
Sur place, le service est parfait.
Aucun !
Wonderfully private and expansive property with two pools (truly!) and so many gorgeous nooks to explore, both inside and out. Staff were always helpful and present, as was Bettina (the Villanovo contact) who was always very quick to answer our calls and be of assistance. There is nothing like waking up to the menagerie of lovely songbirds outside, then enjoying a wonderful breakfast in the garden with the vines above you and olive grove in the distance (and fresh Moroccan OJ that is seemingly endless!). Such a treat of a villa and property! There were primarily just four of us for the week, so we had a lot of room to enjoy and loll about it, but even if you had a large group, there are so many places to relax and take part in small conversations in, it wouldn't be an issue. I noticed some previous guests were a bit fussy about the distance to the house, but we didn't mind it at all, in fact we were quite pleased with the easy 15 drive from the center of Marrakesh, as it made for silent nights and no hullabaloo during our sleep. Lastly, we were amused that the grounds were so vast at this villa that we had to search for the second pool ..... ! Enjoy :)
We are those typical Americans that don't speak French alas, so we had some difficulty translating at times with the staff. We would recommend to the owners that, for non French and Arabic speaking guests, perhaps having an English-speaking house manager would be of great use. That's really the only reason we wouldn't rent this villa again. That being said, Google Translate really was our saving grace (as was Bettina – thank you Bettina!).

Also, confirm the hammam prices and the length of hammam treatment and massage. We had a little mixup with pricing / length of service (again, lost in translation), but overall the hammam treatment was very lovely and the masseuse was truly excellent.
Le charme de la maison , la localisation et surtout le personnel.

J avais entendu parler du fast track (douane) que j 'ai demandé et qui m'a été fourni avec succès malheureusement je ne savais pas qu'on pouvait en beneficier au retour (avec un tampon sur le billet de l'aller) et il y avait beaucoup de queue. Bon à savoir pour les prochains clients.
La piscine non chauffee mais j'etais prevenue.
Everything - we would go again with smaller group
L'accueil est un point fort, ainsi que la grandeur du jardin. A aucun moment on ne se sent les uns sur les autres, chacun peut avoir son espace personnel et privé.La cuisine est excellente , Samira la cuisinière à l'écoute de ses hôtes. Nous étions 12 pendant la location, tous avons à l'unanimité adoré cet endroit.

Conciergerie de Villanovo au top. Lydia parfaite et à l'écoute de ses clients. Nous avons tout particulièrement aimé les excursions qui nous étaient proposées. Loin des chemins touristiques , on nous a fait entrer dans l'intimité du pays et cela est vraiment à recommander.
Les moins concernent le Wifi , car la réception est difficile, le seul endroit ou l'on peut se connecter est le petit patio de l'entrée.
La seconde chose qui pourrait être améliorée est la propreté des 2 piscines, pas toujours parfaite.
Le personnel: accueil chaleureux, excellent service toujours avec le sourire. Repas de haute qualite, et villa decoree avec elegance et bon gout.
Wifi fonctionne mal
Le personnel (particulierement Samira et Saadoun), la jardin et la grande piscine, la decoration, les vues sur l'Atlas enneige, la tranquilite, une maison ou il fait bon vivre la famille avec petits et grands.
Très bonne disponibilité de l'équipe villanovo, catalogue d'activités de qualité
Quelques chambres inégales en qualité, désagréments ponctuels de chiens aboyeurs nocturnes
The property overall.
The service (Sadom? was just fantastic!, Abdoi the driver was also excellent).
Service from Villanovo is excellent. Very professional, handled all the requests promptly in a very efficient and professional manner. Bravo!
3-4 Bedrooms are nice.
Pool is excellent.
Location, impossible to go out without the driver of the house.
Cleaness of toilettes and quality of them, all accesories need a renovation/maintanance.
Only 3-4 rooms are nice the rest are very basic.
No wireless, even if it was promised several times during our stay.
La qualité de la villa dans tous les détails = somptueux
La qualité du service. Abdou, Samira et Saadoun ont été en tous points excellents et d'un contact très agréable.
Concernant Villanovo, rien à redire, service parfait.
La non réception d'internet.
